Christina Aguilera has been the subject of murmurs of late thanks to rumors that she’s left her longtime label and moved to Universal.
While there’s no official word yet on that, what is for sure is that Xtina rocked the stage when performing on an ABC special last night.
‘Taking The Stage: African American Music And Stories That Changed America’ was filmed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; the showcase featured music, dance and dramatic readings by a wide range of talent – such as Aguilera.
She took on ‘Stormy Weather’ by Ethel Waters and her powerful performance awaits below…
Say what folk will about Xtina, she still possesses much of the voice and skill-set that made her a household name.
Now, if only she’d leverage that towards new music.
If indeed Aguilera has switched labels it’d explain the border-line crazy delay in releasing the follow-up to ‘Lotus’ (which turns 5, yes 5, this year).
Because, as much as we value the artistic “process,” we have quite literally seen (over and over) how lengthy gaps between poorly performing projects and their successors rarely fares well for the latter.
We wish her the best.
In any case…
